After picking up an injury at Southampton, Harry Kane will have to get surgery on a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring.
Tottenham Hotspur confirmed reports that the forward’s injury was a fairly serious one, with the surgery being a recommendation from specialists. However, Spurs say the surgery has not impacted his timeline and that Kane is expected to return to training in April.
The statement from the club backs up a report from The Guardian’s David Hytner that Kane would spend several weeks out with his latest injury, though the confirmed timeline is longer than reported.
Kane’s injury only adds to the team’s current crisis, as Tanguy Ndombele, Moussa Sissoko, and Hugo Lloris are at various stages of not being fit enough to play. The expected route is that the team will rely on Son Heung-min in the meantime, but in the midst of the January transfer window, reports continue to link Spurs to loan signings like AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piątek.
